Here are more pictures from our recent ancestor exploration to visit the home of our great-great-great ancestor who was a captain of a ship. Unfortunately at that time, whaling was a profitable occupation and he happened to be a whaler. So we were a little bit conflicted visiting his home and learning about his history, but to actually step up onto the porch where he and his family once stood and feel the connection to these long ago ancestors was surreal.
Of course, we had to explore what the world of whales was all about so we took a whale tour. To see these incredible mammals up close was breath-taking. Definitely it seemed as though they knew who we were and why we were there!
